AUTO ACCIDENT FATAL TO ONE
____________

Car-Truck Crash Near Murray Fatal to N. A. Maggard - R. Smith Injured.

Norval A. MAGGARD, Tingley business man, was fatally injured and Ray SMITH, stock buyer also of Tingley, received serious head injuries as a result of a car-truck crash Thursday night about one and one-half miles west of Murray on primary No. 34. F. C. SHERER, of Red Oak, driver of the truck was uninjured.

MAGGARD and SMITH were en route to Osceola to attend a wrestling match. SHERER was going west, and according to his statement he knew nothing of the crash until his truck was whirled across the road and stopped by the guard rail on the south side of the road. SMITH reported that he and MAGGARD were conversing when there was a sudden crash and the next thing he knew he was in a car being taking to an Osceola hospital.

According to authentic reports, the corner of the truch struck the Tingley car on the windshield directly in front of the driver and tore the entire top of the sedan away. Both men were hurled clear of the wreckage and over the embankment where they landed in deep snow. The injured were taken to an Osceola hospital, where MAGGARD died about a half hour after arrival. SMITH is still in the hospital and reports are favorable for a satisfactory recovery.

OBITUARY ~ NORVAL A. MAGGARD.

Norval A. MAGGARD, son of L. E. and Nellie [(BEAR)] MAGGARD, was born at Kellerton, Iowa, January 18, 1897, and departed this life January 16, 1936, at the age of 38 years, 11 months and 28 days.

He was united in marriage to Miss Ada M. MILLARD, of Carbon, Iowa, at Ellston, Iowa, October 29, 1916, and to this home came one child, Norva Jeane, who passed away in infancy.

He united with the Methodist Episcopal church at High Point when a lad of 17 years and has ever since lived a clean and upright life.

He lived with his parents until the time of his marriage, after which he came with his bride to Tingley and cast his lot with the business men of this city.

He was a kind and very loving husband, a good neighbor. Congenial in business circles and the service he rendered for the upbuilding of the community can never be measured. His presence and joyful personality will be greatly missed in and around Tingley, where his friends were numbered by those who knew him.

He leaves to mourn his departure his wife, his father and mother, three brothers, Roy and Loren at home and Clifford of Wichita, Kan.; two sisters, Mrs. Lula BAKER of Kellerton, and Mrs. Mary MILLARD of Creston; and a host of relatives and friends.

What was his creed?
I do not know his creed. I only know that here below
He walked the common road,
And lifted many a load, lightened the task;
Brightened the day for others toiling on a weary way
This his only creed; I do not know his creed.

What was his creed? I never heard him speak,
Of visions rapturous, of Alpine peak;
Of doctrine, dogma, new or old.
But this I know, he was ever bold to stand alone
To face the challenge of each day;
And live the truth so far as he could see-
The truth that ever more makes free.

His creed? I care not what his creed;
Enough that never yielded he to greed.
But served a brother in his daily need;
Plucked many a thorn and planted many a flower;
Glorified the service of each hour;
Had faith in God, himself, and fellow men;
Perchance he never thought in terms of creed;
I only know he lived a life indeed.

Funeral services were conducted by Rev. STARK Sunday and the body was laid to rest in the Kellerton [Maple Row] cemetery.

Card of Thanks.

We wish to take this way of expressing our heart-felt thanks for the kind and sympathetic help extended us in the passing of our dear one; also for the lovely floral tributes and singing. - Mrs. Norval MAGGARD, Mr. and Mrs. L. E. MAGGARD, brothers and sisters.
